• Americas High School Dress Code for 2020-2021

    Americas High School 2020-2021 dress code is established to maintain an environment that is conducive to student learning and teaches respect for authority. Students are expected to be dressed and groomed in a manner that is clean and neat. Safety is our number one priority so students must wear their school ID’s at all times.

    The following dress/attire IS NOT ACCEPTABLE AND THEREFORE NOT ALLOWED:
